A Typical Trip to the ARC from start to finish.
For assignment 2 & 3, we were required to do more work than assignment 2. At first, I was not sure what I wanted to capture for these assignments. I ended up deciding to capture a trip to the ARC. It is something I do many days a week. I started in my apartment, continued on the walk there, and finished at the ARC.
For assignment 2, we were assigned to taking about a minute of still photos, and had to tell a story. In assignment 3, we were required to do most of the same, but add some natural sound in as well. For the most part, getting the pictures was not a problem. It was harder to get photos that would also contribute good natural sound.
One problem I did have was getting the natural sound. It was hard to get sound that fit with the pictures, so that was a challenge from the start. Unfortunately, some of the good nat sound I obtained did not record as well as I’d hoped, so I was unable to use it in my project, which was incredibly frustrating. I think that in the future I should obtain more natural sound/photos just in case I run into this problem again. The volume on the computers was also not working properly, so it was harder to make sure the nat sound fit well while I was creating my projects. One other main problem I ran into that everybody might notice is that I completely forgot how to add a “continue reading” link on this post, so I will obviously have to ask a classmate about that ASAP. Overall, I ran into a few problems along the way, but I am starting to feel much more confident with my camera, as well as Premiere. I think that if I can continue to make progress on each assignment, my work will continue to get better and better.
